Abandoned this one. It doesn't have an introduction or preface, so I have nothing to guide me other than the paragraph on the back cover. I thought maybe the letters themselves would start to make sense, but they don't. Also, I'm not familiar with most of the people referred to in their non-stop name-dropping. The letters come across like English majors or film students debating in a cafe - more of a pretentious performance than a true debate.
